I'll explain as and when I find time, why Nitrogen fertilizers are 300 times worst than CO2 emissions.
Nitrogen fertilizers from golf courses, lawns, agriculture and horticorture create nitrate run off into our waters creating hundreds of dead zones develop at river outlets.In places like the Gulf of Mexico and Chesapeake Bay , the waters are totally devoid of life-giving oxygen. Northern Gulf of Mexico Hypoxia study, the dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico was 7,900 square miles in 2007, up from an average of 5,200 square miles-thanks to all the additional nitrates from extra corn planting for Ethanol.

1st note every living cell on earth needs nitrogen in some form usually in a form of an amino acid. Microbes in the earth control much of the global nitrogen cycle and can keep it churning fast enough to support life for all of us. (we have unset this balance with wasteful technic's in modern agriculture) In todays modern world the microbual nitrogen fixation supplies only 10 to 20% of the annual requirements. The rest is supplied by reusing the nitrogen that has been previously fixed and is already part of the biosphere, soil, and sea nitrogen pools. In this recycling, just as with the initial fixation of nitrogen, soil organisms play a major role. When the food chain began to evolve a hugh cast of soil creatures, collectively known as decomposers, developed the capacity to obtain nitrofen by comsuming dead microbes, plants, or animals. Much of the soil nitrate that does not get washed away by rains ends up escaping from the land in another way - it is converted back to N2 gas by a special group of microb's known as denitrifiers they produce N2 as their waste product. these microbs complete the cycle of the microbial n2 fixers. We have microbes that fix N2 to the soil and microbs the release it back into the atmosphere, with out these microbs their would be no life on earth. If their were no denitrifiers much of the nitrogen would simply run off into the oceans in its nitrate form and become unavailable to life on land. Man made nitrogen is very taxing on our envoirment and well while we can say it help to feed millions of people, at what cost! man made nitrogen has simultaneously created one of the most serious environmental threats-excessive amounts of nitrogen pollutants in our soil, air, and waterways. The environmental problems could be minimized if we used fertilizer more efficiently and if we recycled the nitrogen-rich organic wastes left behind by the increased populations of humans and livestock animalsthat are supported by increased nitrogen inputs. Unfortuatly, however, only one third to one half of nitrogen we pour onto our farms lawns home gardens and golf courses each year is taken up by plants. Much of the rest leaks into ground waters esteries and the ocean as nitrate. High levels of Nitrate in toxic to humans-and other animals. Nitrate added into rivers, fresh water lakes and esteries throws the food chain out of balance and puts into motion an undesirable process called eutrophication. To be edited and continued later...
